Hey folks,

I'm looking to kit my 2015 FXT out for some adventure with a 1.5" lift and all terrain tires. There is a much greater tire selection in 17" wheel sizes than the stock 18", however the gotcha I keep seeing mentioned is to ensure that the wheels have clearance for the front brakes.

Currently I'm loving the look of the Black Rhino Boxer 17x8 wheels and the BFG KO2 tires, has anyone run this setup or more specifically these wheels and can confirm they would fit the XT brakes?

Cheers,

There is a pinned/sticky thread on here about "proven wheel/tire" set ups that can probably steer you in the right direction. I do believe that the 17" rims will not be a problem. I think it's when you start looking at 15" rims on the XT that you run in to problems.

Thanks, I searched the thread but wasn't able to find a reference to these specific wheels.

The brand generally does not matter when it's the size.
